Hello everyone!
As you saw the title says SHARKS...did it make you want to figure out if we saw one or not???Well I was window shopping with my family and I picked up a magazine with an article called sharks which hooked me...I wanted to know...what about them? Well a lady name Whitney wrote about them in a very interresting piont of view. From this small article I learned alot. When you read an article about sharks its probably about it attacking..and it seems very exagerated. She wrote about us killing sharks..you might have heard of shark fin soup...well in order to make to soup they catch a shark, cut off all its fins and release it ALIVE. It might seem good that they dont kill it but really a shark cant swim without its fins and if it cant swim it cant breathe..thats how they drown. Because sharks clean the oceans of carcuses and stuff.The drowning shark is usually eaten before it dies.This compared to a few nips or bumps is evil. Sharks dont want to eat humans...their food is being taken from them and we are invading their home. What do you expect? Plus most of the time sharks just watch you, they dont do anything. Love sharks, for they are very inportant for our ecosysterm.
